Squares R1C3 and R5C3 in column 3 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <14>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the column.
   R2C3 - removing <1> from <167> leaving <67>
   R3C3 - removing <14> from <1467> leaving <67>
Squares R1C7 and R5C7 in column 7 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <49>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the column.
   R3C7 - removing <4> from <3467> leaving <367>
   R7C7 - removing <49> from <469> leaving <6>
Squares R2C3 and R3C3 in block 1 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <67>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the block.
   R2C2 - removing <7> from <1357> leaving <135>
   R3C1 - removing <7> from <147> leaving <14>
   R3C2 - removing <7> from <13457> leaving <1345>

Squares R1C3 and R3C1 in block 1 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <14>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the block.
   R2C2 - removing <1> from <135> leaving <35>
   R3C2 - removing <14> from <1345> leaving <35>
Squares R1C3 and R5C3 in column 3 and R1C7 and R5C7 in column 7 form a Simple X-Wing pattern on possibility <4>. All other instances of this possibility in rows 1 and 5 can be removed.
   R5C4 - removing <4> from <148> leaving <18>
   R5C6 - removing <4> from <1489> leaving <189>
   R1C9 - removing <4> from <149> leaving <19>
Intersection of column 9 with block 9. The value <4> only appears in one or more of squares R7C9, R8C9 and R9C9 of column 9. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 9. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 9 cannot contain this value.
   R7C8 - removing <4> from <149> leaving <19>
Squares R1C3 and R9C9 form a remote locked pair. <14> can be removed from any square that is common to their groups.
